Like many museums, the majority of our collections are not on public display. As the steward of over 1.2 million objects, there are a lot of unique, interesting, and just plain odd objects within our collections vaults— and this is your chance to get a look at some of them! 

We’re offering 10 different, themed tours of our collections vaults. Each tour date, attendees can choose from one or more themes that interest them the most.

Each tour is led by one of our expert collections staff members and includes:

  • A brief, guided tour through a public exhibit
  • A tour through one of our eight collections vaults
  • A final Q & A session with our collections staff

Tours are for adult audiences (18+). 

Please arrive promptly, as all tours will leave the lobby right at 6pm.

We’re bringing back everyone’s childhood favorite game with a “Choose Your Own Adventure” tour! During this unique and one-of-a-kind tour, YOU will choose what exhibits and collection objects you want to see and learn more about. Your tour guides will simply ask you the question: Would you like to see this, or that?

During the tour, you can choose to view: Natural science specimens, textiles, technology collections, military paraphernalia, art, and more.

Attendees will be separated into two tour groups. We will do our best to ensure individuals attending together are sorted into the same group. To help ensure you are paired with those you’re attending with, we recommend purchasing the tickets together. Please call 585.271.4320 with any questions or concerns.
